across the country. i love mike mashhad doe. he doesn't need a microphone. you can hear him from the parking lot. it just sounds broadcast quality. >> you been talking to the 9ers yourself. >> i have. i have. yeah, football camp has been running rampant. i spent some time with the 49ers the last couple of days. we'll hear from one who is ready for the seahawks. strange stuff can happen in the outfield at at&t park. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,
hour... giants... ...ooh...a ugh one at the fin fertilizer all right, baseball up top. the giants. if it wasn't for bad luck they wouldn't have any at all. former yankees skipper joe torre holding court during the game for the rockies. here's how you erase a 3-1 deficit. have buster posey swing away with two on in the fifth. after a sac. fly, the lead by one, sergio romo has to get in and get out of there clean. that's where centerfielder pagan stepped in or rather stumbled. >> it goes by and that's going to tie the game! scoring is blackman and barnes keeps on coming! the three home, it's an inside- the-park home run!>> brandon barnes, rockies went ahead. you know pagan felt bad on the rout he took to get to the ball. he had chance to play hero in the home half of the ninth. he hit a double play ball here. it was close at first. take a look. pagan was called out and that was challenged to replay.
to replay...safe? out? what is the call? umpires s the s, two straight punc to the gut for t >> he's safe. >> what's the call? >> after a meeting, the umpires say out. and the game is over. to the rockies 5-4 giants lose their second straight game in the 9th. 5-4. >> i think that makes it that much more special because they have given us fits especially here and in late, uhm, fashion. we have been walked off quite a few times. unbelievable things happened inside-the-park homeruns so it's nice to give them a dose of their own medicine. plenty of these statues around the u.s. open pinehurst course. every time phil mickelson got a chance in round 3 today, it was trouble. this the fifth hole. it's on and then off to death valley. a plus 2, 72 today. the leader martin kaymer a small bump in the road also out of the pit. he gets out of the yuck. set up an eagle.
kaymer would maintain his lead but ricky fowler, yeah, has played his way into it made up five strokes with a 3-under currently sits 5 strokes back in second by himself. kaymer shot a 72, and at 8- under it is still his tournament to lose going into the final round tomorrow. soccer, world cup, day 3. powerhouse england and italy. italy in blue. italy up 1-nil. here comes england, danielster -- daniel sturridge ties the game at the half. that's a beaut! but here come the italians minute 50. big hitter mario balotelli! and that's your winner. italy beats england, final 2-1. look who had a football camp. 49er linebacker patrick willis obviously photo opportunity at santa clara high school this week.
and willis and his coaches shepherded about 400 kids for roughly 5 hours of drills and instructions. here's one thing weighing on the minds of these kids and fans around there. >> we'll get out of here with this one in front of all these people, are you going to get seattle? >> yeah ! >> no choice. they are the best in the division. if we want to be the best, we have to take the crown. so we'll see. >> all right. more my chat with patrick willis or p-willie as we like to call him coming up on game day on kpix 5 at 11:30. 3 on 2, across, the shot -- score!! [ screaming ] >> one time junior shark member alec martinez here won the cup last night for the l.a. kings in double overtime over the rangers.
thrill of victory and if a picture said it all, look at ranger goaler henrik lundqvist. he made 48 saves for the rangers and not enough. hard to fathom that the sharks were one win away from sending these kings packing. and now the kings celebrate their second cup in the last three years. >> first of all, everybody had us going home late april since we were down to the sharks 3-0. >> after it went in i think i blacked out. i might --i think i tossed my gear. but --like i said, i'm just so happy for these guys. every kid who picked up a hockey stick in their driveway when they're younger has scored that goal before but it's not about me or the goal. it's just about this hockey club. >> towels this year? >> that's kings coach darrell sutter once a head coach of the sharks as you might recall. what most don't know is that his son here, 21-year-old chris was born with down syndrome. and so he too got to hoist the 35-pound cup last night at staples center.
with ease, i might add. so we have the end of hockey. and by tomorrow night, we could have the end of the nba. >> because the spurs could take out the heat with one more win. we do have the world cup. >> all right. >> u.s. plays monday. >> all righty. thank you, vern. we'll see you again at 11. >> news and weather always on kpix.com. appreciate your watching. have a good evening. captions by: caption colorado firstname.lastname@example.org ,,
